Our Actual Mom Wardrobe: Athleisure Thrift and Splurge

We have fun with our fashion, but we aren’t trying to fool anyone here on Kathryn & Leigh. So, truth be told, our favorite mom-uniform is a good pair of leggings, a fun workout top, and a lightweight jacket/ sweatshirt that you can throw on to run out and grab the mail or a a much needed Starbucks. A functional and trendy sneaker completes the look!

To find a thrifted look this good is epic, and since you can never have too many pairs of highwaisted black leggings, we are also sharing the budget friendly pair you can’t live without!


I love this backless shirt and sports bra combo. Both of these were found at my favorite thrift store in Atlanta for under $4 each, but they are both from Fabletics. I have linked a similar tee here & a similar sports bra here!


This leggings are my absolute favorite.  They are high waisted and have a great mesh detail at the bottom – I love them so much I bought multiple pairs . They are from Target for under $15 & you can purchase a similar pair here.  My Nikes are from Marshall’s & I got them in the kids section for $16-similar grey pair here. (If you usually wear a size 5 or 6 in shoes, look at the kid’s shoe section – a 3 or 4 may fit and they are so much cheaper!)


I LOVE this Lululemon jacket that I found at a Goodwill last winter for $4 . I screamed a little when I found it . Here is a similar one currently sold at Lululemon!


Don’t judge when I tell you I found this top, and some other great athlesiure crop tops, at PINK by Victoria Secret! Sports bra is by Lululemon, and I’m linking a similar here. I would recommend going up a size.


I run about 12 miles a week, but focus my efforts on 30 minute circuits at home. This is the most recent version of my shoe, and let me tell you, they can take a beating and allow you to move through those burpees! I love a black shoe, but the nude and grey pair looks like a necessary investment!

And the leggings every mom needs! Thick enough to smooth you out, a true over-the-belly-button high waist and overall GREAT fit. And, if you need them hemmed, Nordstrom can take care of that for you! Go, go ahead, and get them in every color!
